Matchbox Card for Father’s Day
I am extremely excited and honored to have been asked to be a guest designer for the month of August over at Die Cut Divas! (Thanks, Cathie, for asking me!!) They have monthly challenges where all cards/projects must be made using at least one die cut or embossing folder. (Click HERE to see all the challenge rules.)
“Your Favourite Holiday” is the theme for the month of August so I thought I’d share this matchbox card project I made for Father’s Day.
A matchbox card has decorated, pop-up panels inside a sliding tray like a matchbox. I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to create the box. I had never made a card like this before; this is the Matchbox Card Tutorial that I used make my card.
The elements I used to decorate the top and inside panels of my box are adapted from the Silhouette file by Lori Whitlock called Golf Box Card (Design #60656).
I designed the top of my box to fold and stand up; the underside of this panel is the “inside” of the card with the sentiment and signatures.
As you pull the tray out of the box, the panels inside pop up one by one.
My first panel has a golf cart on it…
Then a putting green…
And then a star with a golf ball and tee and a stamped image.
Here is a side view of the panels.
Behind the last panel is a space to include a gift card if desired.
The unique shape of this “card” requires a special envelope! I used the envelope punch board again to create a box-like envelope for my matchbox card.
This will definitely require a trip to the post office to mail!
The two-sided, patterned paper was called “Steady” from the Loyal Collection by Authentique . I also used Gina K kraft, cranberry tart, fresh asparagus, sandy beach and charcoal brown card stock. Both stamped images were from the “On the Links” stamp set by Papertrey Ink and were stamped with Gina K charcoal brown ink.
Now it’s your turn! Create a card for Your Favourite Holiday using a die or embossing folder and share it over at Die Cut Divas. I can’t wait to see what you create!
Thanks for checking out my card project!

This is too cute. Love the golf theme and how the box opens.
What a clever masculine project you created. So well composed and love the wonderful papers you used for the design.
